Opt-in combined with a non-confrontational and measured tit-for-tat game strategy! It's a very powerful and attractive concept once you start thinking along those lines. Cool

All very good points.  I'm assuming also that since media connects to an unknown resource, it would be media unfriendly?  And what about attachments and such?

Maybe since CD has its own section, we should sticky an announcement for any that happen to find their way here?

Just for conversation's sake... what would that look like from the abstract?  Maybe we can hash it out?  Any thoughts?

My requirements for adoption are simple.  Not real-time, and not brief form- though it would support almost real-time and brief form communications.

@40 - to respond to both of yours in a cheeky manner...

But... chat clients aren't text only anymore either.  So don't they have the same ticking bomb?

As someone who *hates* chat and *hates* real-time communication (even text message/phone), as broken as e-mail is, the alternative solutions that are being proposed don't solve the same problem, IMO.

We use chat clients at work... and I ignore most communication over them unless it is appropriate for a real-time communication mechanism.  People tend to abuse the medium and just reach out with no consideration for what the person on the other end might be in the middle of with chat/phone anything real-time, I've found.  The thing I love about e-mail is the same thing I formerly loved about letter writing (and the reason I play PbEM instead of the more immediate roll20 and such), the act of formulating the response is a mental exercise.

This! Thmbsup A worthy opponent is worth their weight in gold if you really do want to work through and clarify your position on something. It's fun. It's challenging. And it's absolutely essential if you want to avoid the trap of what philosopher William James called: "vicious abstractionism."

I haven't heard it put so eloquently.  I enjoy the exercise... and don't expect to change anyone's position, or be called 'right' or a 'winner'.

If a developer wants to "bundle" his apps with other tools that are "OPT-IN", so that they will not install by default by a distracted user,

Does anyone actually use opt-in? I don't think I've ever seen anything other than opt-out. I'm more concerned about the cases where you opt out of everythng, and in spite of that, you find something has taken over the home page, search engine of every installed web browser.

By default, OC was opt-in.  There were tools for developers to change it to opt-out, which I disagreed with.  Not sure about the state now.

And also a point- is it sourceforge?  Or is it the developer?

What happened to my 40?  I could always depend on 40 to be the rational one, balancing out the radical Renegade, and myself in the middle!

@Wraith - I think you just completely lost me there... smiley

It's just that your statement sounded more closely aligned to a Ren statement smiley

^What is it with Australia (and New Zealand) lately? They went from being two of the coolest most laid-back countries in the world to being participants in the footrace race to see which so-called "Western Democracy" can be the first to fully embrace totalitarianism. So sad. Sad

What happened to my 40?  I could always depend on 40 to be the rational one, balancing out the radical Renegade, and myself in the middle!

It's sort of like the other day I made a joke about Librium... referring to the drug in Equilibrium, and it went right over someone's head... because life imitates art (there's a Librium that does pretty much what the one in the movie does).  Everything turns on it's head... Stephen Colbert needed to move on from his usual because the world was going to stay this crazy and it become the status quo.

I don't think I've seen these gents mentioned here: Unlocking the Truth

From the Stephen Colbert Report: http://www.metalinjection...rilled-by-stephen-colbert (via Metal Injection - 3 good performances there)

Their own site: http://unlockingthetruthband.com/

(note that they by default MUTE their video.  People could learn a lot from these 8th graders)

And wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unlocking_the_Truth

They're pretty cool... been following them for a while now.

Nice looking program... once I got my head around it.

I'd suggest making your own file that does something non-intrusive, and showing the end result in your screenshots.  I think it would help with understanding the program.

It shouldn't be the pdf assembly, as it's self contained in the directory, and not installed- it's just a library that I call.  I also use a (few different) PDF drivers on different machines, and haven't seen any behavior like you've said.  I'd like to test that out... but I understand if you're not willing.

Thanks for the feedback in any case!

A variation on the problem is that I have deleted a file from a folder but it was still there. When some 15 sec later I wanted to delete it again, it would give me an error message (i.e. it was already deleted but it wasn't cleared from view). I had to navigate to another folder and then back to "refresh" the folder and get rid of the 'nonexistent' file.

You are persuading me to stick with 9 LOL smiley

UPDATE: Added HTML Export.  Need feedback on whether its confusing- instead of putting some dropdown or something, I just used the expedient of the selected file filter, i.e. if you choose PDF in the save dialog, it will export in PDF- otherwise it's HTML.

It's not confusing, but it didn't work on my system. Even when PDF is selected (which is the default option), it still saves it as HTML (and so does the HTML option). Personally I don't need the PDF option. Normally I print to PDF, and looks like CTRL+P does trigger the printer, so that's sufficient.
it is based off of the extension currently, so if you don't put an extension in, it will default to html.  I might find a different way to do it if I can't get the filter.

Clicking on the Information icon crashes the app on my system (Win 7, 64-bit).
Can you provide any more information?  I have a win7 64-bit machine and it is working which is why I ask for more information.

Also, I had some encoding issues, with dashes, apostrophes, quotation marks and French accented characters being replaced by a dark square with a question mark.

Was it that way in the export?  And can you provide a sample document?

I wasn't sure what the button before the close button is for. It didn't seem to do anything.
It doesn't.  Haven't gotten that in yet.

Otherwise it works fine, renders Markdown correctly. Aesthetically speaking, I'd prefer if it didn't justify paragraphs or at least the headings (i.e. align text left instead), as it makes the text look messy, by stretching it out (actually the paragraphs look fine, it's the longer headings really that are a problem).
it shouldn't be justifying anything.  I'm rendering the HTML using a flow control... so the only thing it should be doing is wrapping lines.  Because it's a flow control, it might change spacing until it can wrap.  And I don't see it justifying headings... that first line in the screenshot is a heading and it's aligned left.  I might need a screenshot or even a sample if you can to understand what you're saying?

But it's coming together nicely, so keep up the good work! Thanks! Thmbsup

Thanks for the feedback!

@wraith808: I guess if you'd read the books or any of the hype then you'd know they were aimed squarely at teens.  I usually just go, "Sci-Fi, I'll have to give it a try."   smiley

Plus, I guess, it's the hope that maybe one of these films will actually be worth the time undecided

Or have a teenager.  Grin  I'm just glad that she reads all the time... and if that's what she wants to read and watch, then more power to her!  Thmbsup

He found the problem using Wordfence

Quote
I found out where's the problem with Wordfence

If you are referring to

/wp-includes/template-loader.php
/wp-includes/js/swfobject.js

Those are not Wordfence files, if a plugin uses WP's Includes folder to insert js and php files I would not use it to start with...

How are the updated one's not Wordfence's files if the fix is to re-download the archive?

I'm not sure... I wasn't affected.  I just figured someone might benefit from knowing in the case that their site was displaying the same symptoms.
23  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Wordfence Hacked on: December 14, 2014, 03:17:48 PM
where do these say Wordfence was hacked?

Look at the wordpress support page.  There are two specific files in the wordfence update archive that propagate the problem. There has been no 'official' statement.  But that would be one hell of a coincidence.

Quote
I've had the same issue now (soaksoak.ru, wp 4.0.1, hostgator, only in chrome with phishing and malware protection enabled). I found out where's the problem with Wordfence
https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordfence/

Btw, there was soaksoak.ru error in the chrome console last couple of days, but the sites were working fine, until today.

Anyway, try this first - download fresh wp installation, and check these files, if they're recently changed, I'm guessing you got the same two hacked:
/wp-includes/template-loader.php
/wp-includes/js/swfobject.js

Replace them with the files from the fresh installation.

If it isn't the problem with them, install Wordfence and scan to find the issue.

Now I'm trying to find out how the hell this happened, and I came accross your post. We have a number of client sites, with identical dev versions on the hostgator and live ones on other hosts, live sites are perfectly fine, dev sites got the hack (literally all of them), figure can't be the issue with the sites, so I'm guessing it's something up to hostgator.

Maybe not the only one.  But I'm not in that camp.  I loved it.

Any feedback... positive or negative on this?  I'm moving right now, so probably won't be able to finish the additional features until week after next, but wanted to see if there was any feedback.

Thanks!
